Baby Ethan!!

He is here and he is beautiful! Greg and Heidi asked me to post some pictures of their sweet little bundle of joy and let all of you know how he is doing. Ethan Greg Skidmore, weighing in at a healthy 6lbs 4oz, was born yesterday, February 18, at 10:29AM. Most importantly, there were NO SURPRISES. That is a blessing in itself. So far, Ethan is doing well, breathing on his own and fussing because he's hungry! He'll start to get more nutrients and fats to satisfy him very soon. Ethan will be in the NICU for a short while longer before he moves to the heart unit.
Greg and Heidi thank all of you for your thoughts, prayers and kind words.

Love, Aunt Brianne

Yay! Congrats! He's a looker, that's for sure. And I love his beautiful almost tanned looking skin! Good luck with everything in the NICU - we've played that game, and it is certainly comforting to know that some of the best nurses work in there.

Look at that adorable foot, makes me want to tickle it! He is handsome to be sure!

Hope mom is getting some rest. Glad there were no surprises. Is it just me, he looks really long in these pictures?! We will keep Ethan in our prayers for a perfect first surgery. Love, Wendy
